Penn State Altoona to present jazz concert featuring Emerging Artist in Residence
ALTOONA – Penn State Altoona will present a jazz concert on Friday, April 10 at 7:30 p.m. with Carl Schultz, Penn State Altoona’s Emerging Artist in Residence. The concert will take place in the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts. It is the premier of Schultz’s new collection of compositions and will also feature a set of classic selections from the 1960’s Blue Note catalogue. The concert is free and open to the public.
A native of the Philadelphia suburbs, Schultz has performed and studied throughout the Northeast, completing a Masters of Music degree at the University of the Arts in 2008 and a Bachelor of Music degree from SUNY at Purchase College in 2004. Schultz now lives in Boulder, Colorado, teaching at the University of Colorado. He completed a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in 2014. In his performing career, Schultz has been a sideman in groups including modern jazz heavyweights Ray Vega, Matt Shulman, Brad Goode, and Art Lande. He has also had the opportunity to perform with jazz legends such as Dave Brubeck, Billy Taylor, and Mickey Roker. Schultz has worked with popular music groups and musicians including Dr. Dog, Lillian Boutte, and Henry Butler, performing at the Celebrate Brooklyn and Concert in the Park festivals as well as After the Flood: From New Orleans with Love. Recent engagements include performances at the Niwot and Mile High jazz festivals, clinics in the Denver public school system and Denver School for the Arts, the University of Colorado Summer Jazz Academy, and various benefits for Colorado flood victims.
Schultz’s new compositions feature an odd instrumentation of two saxophones and a drum set. With this stark instrumentation, the compositional emphasis is on counterpoint, form, and texture. Each piece has a unique construction requiring an equally distinct approach to improvisation. These variations make the program move continuously forward and invite the listener to share in these musical explorations.
